For those readers who are not familiar with Edgar Cayce, I will give you a very brief history of the man regarded by many as America's greatest psychic. Edgar Cayce was born in rural Kentucky on March 18,1877, and passed on in Virginia Beach, Virginia on January 3, 1945. He gave over 15,000 psychic readings in a coma-like trance state and there are copies of over 14,000 of these readings at his Association For Research And Enlightenment, or A.R.E. for short, in Virginia Beach. Approximately 10,000 of these readings were medical readings where in his deep-trance state he diagnosed medical problems and prescribed remedies, including prescriptions which had not yet been invented. Many of these patients who received medical readings had been classified as hopeless by their medical practitioners and had come to Edgar Cayce as a last resort. Over 300 books have been written about Edgar Cayce and his readings, including at least 12 biographies. For more information on Edgar Cayce you should visit the A.R.E. website at http://www.edgarcayce.org/. If you would like to read the article that made Edgar Cayce a national celebrity, go to www.nytimes.com/, then site map or archives, then free articles for October 1910, then look for ILLITERATE MAN BECOMES A DOCTOR WHEN HYPNOTIZED.
After medical readings, the next largest group of Edgar Cayce readings was reincarnation or past-life readings. The Edgar Cayce archives contain approximately 2500 past-life readings for some 2000 individuals, and four of these past-life readings revealed informative details of incarnations near Stonehenge. The name Stonehenge does not appear in any of the readings, but they instead refer to the alters near what is now the town of Salisbury in England. Salisbury is eight miles from Stonehenge. The four readings we are going to look at here tie Stonehenge to a migration of refugees who were descendants of Biblical King Hezekiah, the thirteenth King of Judah. These refugees were escaping the onslaught of Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, and sailed to the coast of England. Stonehenge is about thirty miles from the English Channel.
Archaeologists believe that Stonehenge was erected by more than one civilization. Our migrants from the Holy Land may not have been the first civilization to settle in the vicinity of Stonehenge, but they did perform some of the construction at the site, and their contribution was for religious purposes. It is time to look at the readings.
Reading 3581-1 gets us started. Similar to the Bible, each paragraph in an Edgar Cayce reading has been assigned a number. 23. Before that the entity was in the English land during those periods when there were those journeyings into that land from the Holy Land, when the children of Hezekiah prompted many of those even in authority to leave the Holy Land because of Nebuchadnezzar's activities. 24. The entity was young in years when it came into the coasts of England where altars were set up to tie up the meanings of "The Lord thy God is one." ...
Reading 3590-1 mentions Salisbury. 17. The entity was a granddaughter of Hezekiah the king, and among those who set sail to escape when the activities brought the rest of the people into servitude in the Persian land. 18. Then the entity was among those who landed and set up the seat of customs as indicated in the altars built near what is now Salisbury, England. These were the early traditions carried into those activities.
Reading 3645-1 adds more details to the uses of Stonehenge. 17. The entity was among those groups who escaped in the ships that settled in portions of the English land near what is now Salisbury, and there builded those altars that were to represent the dedications of individuals to a service of a living God. 18. Thus the entity aided in giving the records and teachings that may help others in the present, in giving to others that helping hand - who may be as a record keeper.
Lastly, we have reading 5384-1. 9. Before that we find the entity was in the English land in the early settlings of the children of Israel who were foregathered with the daughters of Hezekiah in what is now Somerland, Somerhill or Somerset. There the entity saw group organization for the preservation of tenets and truths of the living God,...
I realize that the information in the Edgar Cayce readings cannot come close to answering all of our questions about the origins of Stonehenge, but some important facts are provided. One civilization near Stonehenge was comprised of refugees from the Holy Land who were relatives and subjects of King Hezekiah, and who had sailed from the mainland to the coast of England to escape the conquering King Nebuchadnezzar. These immigrants did build alters on the Stonehenge site to worship their one God.
